Traditional pasta frittata with small "Greek" variations I have for you here.

Nevertheless, here I will also write you the 100% traditional recipe if you want to make it exactly as they make it in Naples.

The traditional recipe is made with spaghetti (as I made it). The only substantial difference lies in the cheeses they use there. More specifically, the ingredients of the traditional recipe are: 350 gr. spaghetti, 5 slightly beaten eggs, 50 g. grated parmesan, 100 g. smoked scarmorza cheese cut into cubes, a little thyme, 50 g. chopped bacon, 35 g. olive oil, 100 gr. milk, 1 clove of garlic.

In my recipe I used shredded mozzarella instead of parmesan and feta instead of smoked scarmorza cheese. I also didn't use bacon because I'm a vegetarian. All other ingredients were used.
